Step aside, The Good Wife; there's a new Wire reunion afoot. Clarke Peters and Dominic West will be playing Othello and Iago in a British production of Othello later this year. Freamon and McNulty, together again! You just can't keep these guys away from complicated stories about manipulation, schemes, race, and power dynamics set against a background of commerce and violence. [What's On Stage]
